Linux adventure:

so months ago I did my fresh install of Debian Bookworm. I thought wi-fi was working fine until I went somewhere with a different wifi network. connman wasn't working. connman GUI would launch but I couldn't see or connect to any networks, so I had to Google how to use wpa_cli or something to connect via command line. which I got working, but y'know, clunky for something that should have worked out of the box, right?

i just took my laptop to a coffee shop and had another go at *really* fixing the problem. some CLI solutions involved nmcli, but I don't have that, dude, I'm supposed to be using connman but it's saying "no carrier"

found this guy who was like "I deleted isc-dhcp-client-ddns, works gr8", and I didn't have that package but thought deleting dhclient, the thing that lets my computer use DHCP, was maybe a bad idea anyway. but maybe I could... disable dhclient?

anyway that second guy was right. my home network settings for the wifi device had been written into /etc/network/interfaces, probably during the wifi-connected Debian installation process, and dhcpd was taking over that interface and not letting connman manage it. commented it out. rebooted. connman works and I didn't delete anything important in the process. victory

oh no I didn't post this here for you guys, I'm just putting it here so it comes up when some other idiot googles the problem

I don't have bad things to say about any of my present coworkers

I can think of people I used to work with that one could say bad things about

Sometimes a difficult or annoying coworker lands at your job, and for one reason or another they don't last. (And until then you're waiting for them to do something that will finally get them fired.) Other times you start a job somewhere and the annoying person has been there forever and might not be leaving anytime soon, so you just have to learn how to work with them without setting them off.

I would muse that maybe the harder a job is to get, the less likely that shitty people will make it onto the payroll, but then I remembered sexual harassment type software dudes, so maybe not

sexy anime bitches have been a critical load-bearing feature of computer mahjong games since the 1980s. no bitches = why did you even make this game when there are so many other mahjong games with bitches

in spite of this i don't think i ever fully grasped the rules and strategy of real mahjong well enough to undress anybody

i welcome the terrible targeted ads that are about to be served to me and probably also my roommate

hello ytmnd fans

this is your reminder that Paul Engemann's "Scarface (Push It To The Limit)" is currently available on streaming after being one of those annoyingly unobtainable major label songs for a long time

go! clock crew! go out and walk along the razor's edge!

yknow just using ccbt as a vessel for stuff nobody cares about

i remember seeing this 4chan greentext once where it's a story about a kid who has to do a presentation in class, but he's a Linux enjoyer and the computer won't Just Work with the classroom projector, and the teacher's all "ok hm well look maybe you can go another day who's next, and Linux kid gets all heated and says "no i can do it i just have to install the driver for the projector i swear"

in the previous post, i was playing records on a venue's turntables, but (as I said) something was fucky about how the turntables were set up, so I was all squinting at the needle trying to figure out what model it was so i could find the appropriate settings on the manufacturer's website. you may have seen this Big Bang Theory episode

in today's post, i take my laptop to work for the first time since my fresh Debian install, and discover that although i successfully configured my home wifi settings at install, the glorious Free Software program I formerly used to manage my wifi connections has been benched because it apparently depends on Python 2, so instead I've been issued a GUI network connection manager that doesn't work at all and I had to use my phone to google how to get on wifi using the cli. awesome

making things harder for myself than they need to be is the story of my life

this also made me think about what typical online conversations were like for me in high school vs. what it's like now, and the difference is crazy

high school: a lot of one-on-one IM conversations with people (both e-friends and irl friends), and then maybe being on IRC with internet friends only
now: like, absolutely no one-on-one text-based conversations -- text messages aren't a long-haul format, and unlike the "chill on AIM" era where people were either "available" or "away" and probably just fucking around on their computer, you have no idea how "available" your phone friend is at a glance. DMs with irl friends on Instagram or whatever are strictly limited to like why I haha'd at your meme. we are not going to actually talk about anything at length unless we're hanging out in person. groupchats on discord.

that's fucked up
i'm fucked up
